Great day fishing with Capt Frank Drudi and mate Carson. Discussed what we wanted to catch and what the plan for the 8 hrs would be. Every phase of the day was a new offshore fishing method from our past trips. From catching the Bluebacks and Ballyhoos for bait, catching 24 nice Yellow Tail Snappers, and kite fishing for Sailfish. Hooked a nice Sail, saw a good jump, but didn't get to land it. The seas were running 5' to 6'+, but Capt Frank's seamanship and Carson's awesome deck work made for a safe, fun, and learning day. Highly recommend the Phoebe and the Chelsea Team.

On a day when it seemed there were no fish to be caught by any charter, we came in with a nice haul. We filled the cooler in the morning and then took the risk of going after something bigger in the afternoon. We didn’t have much luck there, but we had a blast doing it. The captain was personable and interacted with us, which isn’t always the case on these charters. The first mate was awesome, although I think he was just filling in. The boat was really cool with tons of character. It was comfortable and very very very clean. I strongly recommend these guys!

Captain Frank Drudi and mate Tony were great. Before we got started, the captain asked what we were looking to catch, and was upfront about what he thought would be the best options for us to target. This was one of those rare days where everything we were wanting to catch was biting at some point on the trip, which culminated with us bringing in an awesome Wahoo at the end! Captain Drudi and Tony worked non-stop on the trip making sure we were in the best position to catch fish and keep reeling them in. We told Captain Drudi before the trip that we wanted to catch some Mahi-mahi (Dolphinfish), Blackfin Tuna, and Wahoo. We would have been more than happy just getting 1 of the 3, but he found a way to get all 3, plus the bonus of Sailfish, Cero Mackerel, and a Triggerfish (which was delicious!). If I find myself going to the Florida Keys again I would not hesitate to book another charter with Chelsea Charters. They offer a great value for what you get in return.

Booked a last minute evening charter for shark and tarpon for the family. Capt Dru got us booked right away and set us up with Travis and Addison for Captain & Mate. These guys were great with the kids, first fishing experience like this for us all and by the end everyone brought at least one fish to the boat. The guys even made sure my daughter, who was nervous about it caught a fish. Can’t say enough about how great these guys were, especially with the kids.

We can not recommend Chelsea Charters enough! I booked them for my husband and sons birthday! Capt Frank and first mate John were excellent. They got us on the mahi mahi and were constantly on the look out even on the trip in to find us fish! John talked to the boys and was encouraging and patient! They gave us great recommendations on where to take the fish and have it prepared! Only downside is we didn’t book them for another day!!! We will be back next year and will book again and this time two days!
